A Wisconsin Man Hits 30,000 Big Macs

A 64-year-old Wisconsin man has eaten his 30,000th Big Mac and not only has lived to tell the tale, but claims low cholesterol and “perfect” blood pressure. Don Gorske ate his first Big Mac in 1972 at the same McDonald’s where he chowed down his 30,000th last Friday, and he’s only missed about eight days in between. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998. Why the obsession with the Big Mac? Gorske says he has OCD, which has led him to catalog thousands of receipts, wrappers, and containers over the course of more than four decades. After consuming No. 30,000, he took one for the road. “Maybe I’ll be eating it when I catch myself on the news, who knows?” he says.
